Meghan Markle, 37, will soon be California-bound though the puzzle remains as to whether she would be using one stone to kill two birds. The Duchess of Sussex is flying to Los Angeles to see her mother, Doria Ragland putting her just 150 miles away from her father, Thomas Markle in Rosarito, Mexico.
Father and daughter have not spoken to each other for 3 months after it was revealed he staged paparazzi photos in the lead-up to the royal wedding in May.
Royal sources however says it’s still unknown if Meghan will take this chance to reunite and make attempts to repair her frayed relationship with her father.

“The past few weeks will no doubt have been incredibly stressful for Meghan and no one wants this saga to continue for her,” they told The Mirror.
“Hopefully she can find some way of seeking resolution with her father, but going back to her roots for a few days is exactly what she needs right now.”
‘Time will tell what the process for any type of relationship may be, but as long as they keep hurting her, it becomes more and more unlikely they will be able to have any type of relationship.”
The news comes just a day after it was revealed that Meghan and Prince Harry will not engage with Thomas despite his outbursts.

In recent weeks, Thomas, 74, has compared the royals to Scientologists and even gone as far as to claim that Meghan would be better off ‘if I was dead’.
He has slammed what he calls his daughter’s “sense of superiority” and even hit out at her directly, saying: “You’d be nothing without me.”
The newlyweds, who are said to be waiting for him to approach them in a ‘respectful manner’, will not try to ‘set the record straight’, according to the Sunday Times.
Meghan is believed to be reluctant to talk to her father in case he leaks anything to the press.
A source told the Sunday Times: “Meghan doesn’t think it’s a fair game between her father and the media so she’s not going to engage in it or instruct anyone on her behalf to set the record straight.”
“There have always been fears over his vulnerability. Now he’s got himself into a cycle of talking publicly. It’s very sad.”
Thomas’ repeated interviews with the press – including a number of statements to gossip websites in the run up to the wedding in Windsor – have been a sore spot for the couple.

“The only reason Meghan hasn’t spoken to her father yet is because she’s yet to hear from him in a respectful manner,” a source told DailyMail.com earlier this week.
“Thomas is speaking to the press more than he’s reached out and spoken to his own daughter.”
In an interview with the Mail On Sunday, Thomas claimed Meghan told him there would be ‘no room’ for him to give a speech at the wedding, and that he ‘doesn’t care’ about the Royals and wants his old life back.
He said: “I’m not mad at Harry. I’m not mad at Meghan. I love them. I wish them well. But as for the rest of it, f*** it. I’m done.”
In the same interview, which lasted for 9 hours, Thomas said he had given just 3 interviews but felt the need to speak out again to combat the ‘lies’ about him.
But within 24 hours, Thomas was talking to the Sun on Sunday, describing the Royal Family as ‘cult-like’.
‘They are either like Scientologists or the Stepford family. If they hear anybody say anything they just lock the doors. They need to speak up!’ he said. ‘They are cult-like — like Scientology — because they are secretive. They close the door, pull the shades down and put their fingers in their ears so they don’t have to hear.’

On Saturday, Thomas also admitted he had made a ‘terrible mistake’ when he lied to Prince Harry about the staged paparazzi photos, adding that he has ‘paid for it ever since’.
The Los Angeles trip will be the first time Meghan has seen her mother since her May wedding, and she may even make a trip to Canada as well. It has been reported that Meghan could pay a visit to friends in Toronto, including her former Suits co-stars and best friend, Jessica Mulroney.
Mulroney, as well as Ragland, have been constant sources of support for the Duchess as she continues to battle her father’s embarrassing public outburst.
However, Prince Harry is not expected to accompany Meghan to California but the couple are reportedly planning a trip back to her native state during their American tour in 2019.
The couple are currently gearing up for an international tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand in October.
“Meghan and Harry have so much to look forward to, it’s important they continue to enjoy life as a newly married couple and don’t let all the controversy get to them”, one source said.
“They are rising above it and have the support of the entire family whatever happens.”
